Meet Carree Tolle, Teaching Artist & Art Therapy Coach with Our Soul Oasis

ColorYourselfPurple | Therapeutic Art & Paint Therapy 

I am CARree, a Teaching Artist, Writer and Certified Art Therapy Personal Development Life Coach.

I have been using art from a very young age to recapture the better days and color my life purple, the way I thought it should look like. I used my imagination and art works to cheer myself up; to escape from the pain and hurt I experienced as a child and beyond.

I developed the need for the arts in my life.  Embracing the peace, and the moments within the arts to heal, to recreate, to separate myself from the pain. Through drawing and writing, from the Ballet to the Symphony. To make a life brighter and bolder for the world to see my true color, to Color Myself Purple.

An active artist, and writer on some level throughout my adult life as a commissioned artist as a contracted columnist, and paid writer. Staying close to my artistic and creative nurturing side, while maintaining a full time career that actually paid the bills.

While teaching art since 2016, I have come to realize my true passions, and desire to help others in the healing process through art as I have. And found a greater love for life, and even deeper love and appreciation for the arts more so than I already had. I found in the process of healing and helping others through the art of healing on a greater level as I had never experienced art before.

Recently obtaining Certification in Art Therapy Coaching and Personal Development, I am ready to Paint the WORLD Purple!!! Having experience in the Arts for nearly 20 years as an artist, writer, and digital designer, while I am now Certified as an Art Therapist Developmental Coach, continuing my education in order to achieve an UnderGrad Bachelors in General Psychology, Cognitive and Critical Thinking. I will continue to teach art, and now will be able to provide art therapy coaching sessions, and soon to be helping on a clinical level as an UnderGrad in the near future.

Creating a Life of Kindness by Dr. Wendy Rae D.D.

Mark Twain nailed the concept of kindness in one sentence: Kindness is the only language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see. 20 years ago, sifting through a small town library in northwest Iowa, I stumbled upon a book of quotes. At the time I was editor of the weekly newspaper and was always looking for inspiration to pass along to the community. Little did I know that this small book of quotes was going to impact me two full decades later. In one of the sections of the quote book was a particular area that I found myself reading repeatedly. It was the section on kindness. At that time, I was going through some huge personal issues and I was struggling with how to remain open to possibility, keep my motivation high, and how to be a positive influence for my 6 old daughter. Three quotes from that book have stayed with me. “A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.” Steve Maraboli “The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intent
